Dealing with the challenges of today requires movers and thinkers, people of action who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. Aging Rainbows emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the LGBT older adult community; we heard a call to action and we responded . Established in 2019, we are an organization driven by passion, progressive ideas, forward actions, and a strong foundation of support. We strive to build productive relationships and to make a positive impact with all our pursuits.
Aging Rainbows is a not-for-profit, 100% volunteer-run organization with no paid employees. We are a collaborative group of like-minded individuals from the LGBTQ+ community and allies who are driven by one primary goal: to make the world a better place for ALL individuals!
Our mission is simple — to provide community outreach, education, and supportive programs, foster inclusive care communities and care providers, expand socialization opportunities for LGBT older adults, provide easily identifiable LGBT friendly providers for individuals to use in accessing care, and to support intergenerational programs in the Northern, VA area! We also hope to eventually spark more aging rainbows chapters throughout the country! t
Contact us today to show support, to get involved in LGBT older adult or ally programs, to learn how to be an inclusive care provider, and to learn more about our community programs & initiatives!
